This study is a quantitative research on students' motivations to volunteer in two countries, the U.S. and Nepal, based on six motivational factors identify by Clary and his colleagues (1998). The six motivational factors included following variables: the Values Motive, the Understanding Motive, the Enhancement Motive, the Social Motive, the Protection Motive and the Career Motive. The undergraduate students pursuing different areas of specialization were the sample population for this study. The purpose of this study was to identify the similarities and differences in those motivational factors in two countries and also to understand the relationship between those factors. The study found that there is significant difference in motivations to volunteer between the students in the U.S. and Nepal. The study also indicated that there is a significant relationship between those six motivational factors analyzed for both the countries.
